Marvel Comics writer Donny Cates recently took to Twitter to allege that “CG incels” harassed him with photoshopped images, but while making the claim he also said that comic professionals comic had actually stalked her before he even started dating her.
Cates, who is currently the author of Hulk and Thor, started off in her thread with two now-deleted tweets.
In the first, he responded to a user who wrote to him, “It’s scary when a guy talks about your wife’s appearance in any way. There’s nothing like a nice compliment on your wife’s appearance.
Cates replied, “Oh, I disagree. But it’s very situational and had to be in good faith. For example, I think if a good friend (male or female) that you know and trust tells your wife she looks pretty in a dress or her outfit is great or whatever quite appropriate.
In the following, he wrote: “Megan Hutchison-Cates worked in film for 15 years and in comics for about ten years. So many of her friends are naturally male. And they *are very respectful of our marriage and Megan and if any of them commented on an Instagram post saying she was beautiful, I wouldn’t flinch.

Cates then claimed that Hutchison was stalked when the two started dating, “I will say this though. And I won’t name any names. But when I was dating Megan, I would often hang out at her table while I was on hiatus. And I was AMAZED at how naive I had been about what women go through in this industry when it comes to scary guys.
He continued, “And, these days, Megan Hutchison-Cates and I don’t really have to deal with that anymore. It calmed down a LOT when we went out publicly as a couple.
“And it’s good that they backed off. But it’s so F***ED UP that these guys ONLY backed off once they found out she was with someone with power,” he added.
He went on to say that the harassment of some of these people was so severe that it could put their careers at risk: “Like, oh, you were perfectly fine harassing and staking my girlfriend (at the time), but NOW that you know she’s with someone who could hurt your career if you act like… NOW you’ll act like a gentleman. Very cool. So pathetic.”

After claiming that a number of comics industry professionals he worked with harassed his wife, he went on to accuse “CG incels” of harassing him with photoshopped images of his wife.
He wrote: “Anyway. Woke up today to a bunch of CG incels sending me dozens of DMs on Instagram telling me (and showing me with photoshopped pics of her) all the things they “want to do to him”.
“And I know they never will. It’s just then that he tries to excite me. But yes,” he added.
Cates provides no evidence for this claim, but he concludes the thread by writing, “Still maybe a little excited about the whole thing. Sorry. Go wild. TL: DR: Don’t be an asshole to my wife. »
Cates wouldn’t just target what he describes as “incel CGs.” In a separate thread, he claims that it is the Christians who harass him.
Cates responded to a user who wrote, “As a straight guy, I found this thread to be a strange read. protecting your wife/family/friends is 90% of conservative values. Getting emotional seems like the right decision to me.
“Yes dude. Your guess is as good as mine. And what’s fascinating to me is that A LOT of people who send me these sexually inappropriate things about my wife very often have profile pictures with like… wife and children and claim to be protectors of the word of the gods,” Cates again asserts without providing any evidence.

He continues: “Look. Even though the internet has latched onto how Megan and I dress or whatever…we’re not Satanists.
“And we are both very good with people who have a religious connection. Literally two of my best friends on earth are devout Christians,” he adds.
“I guess I just want to point out that I have nothing against people who are religious. Nothing at all,” he said. the same ones who DM me to go kill me.”
Cates also claims that the alleged harassment of which he provides no evidence is a nefarious plot to trick people into funding Comicsgate projects.
He wrote on Twitter: “Comicsgate understood they couldn’t hurt me. Neither emotionally nor financially. So now their new thing is trying to get me into a big fight (so they’re selling more books obviously) by attacking Megan.
“It’s been going on for years,” he said.

Prominent Comicsgate member and Cyberfrog creator Ethan Van Sciver responded to Cates’ claims by using a standard meme format to create conversation.
He wrote: “BD:
Marvel Writer: It’s cool when guys hit on my wife as long as they do it the right way.
Comics: what the hell are you talking about, man? »
Marvel Writer: CGers HAD IT HURT THIS MORNING!!! ”
He then asked for evidence: “Received, wet-brained woman? This industry is absolutely crazy.
In another tweet, Van Sciver shared screenshots of Cates’ tweets.
He wrote: “THE COWARD DONNY CATES number 1 1. Donny offers blind oblique commentary on the continuing problem of women (like his wife) being abused in comics. 2. Donny freaks out and scapegoats ‘CG Incels’ rather than blaming his peers, the real male feminist predators in the comics.
Fellow Comicsgate member Jon Del Arroz responded to Cates’ accusation on YouTube.
He said: “If Donny Cates can’t [show evidence] here I call shenanigans and call that Comicsgate has nothing to do with it. And Donny, you owe Comicsgate an apology.
What do you think of Cates’ accusations without any evidence? What about Van Sciver and Del Arroz’s answer?
